Automatic is only available in the U.S right now. We're working hard to support other countries!
The Automatic Link plugs into the same port your mechanic uses when you take your car in for service. It's easily accessible near the steering wheel.
Using Bluetooth® 4.0 technology and sophisticated energy-saving algorithms, the Link minimizes your phone's battery consumption.
Automatic learns about your driving style and gives you subtle audio cues when you do things that waste gas, like:
Braking abruptly decreases fuel efficiency and dramatically increases wear-and-tear on your car’s brake pads.
Highway speeding may not save you much time, but driving 10 MPH over the speed limit reduces fuel efficiency by 12-15%.
Stepping hard on the gas pedal decreases fuel efficiency and wastes money.
Automatic shows how you're doing on every trip.
The Automatic app displays detailed info about your week, like how much you drive and where.
See the actual MPGs for all your trips, even for older cars that don't display fuel efficiency on the dashboard.
Automatic also detects* fill-ups and even tracks local gas prices to show you how much you're spending.
*Not supported in some car models.
The Automatic Link includes a built-in accelerometer that can detect many types of crashes. Automatic uses your phone's data connection to immediately report the crash to 911* with your name, location, and vehicle description.
Once help responds, Automatic can send a text message to your loved ones to let them know what happened, where you are, and that help is on the way.
*Crash Alert, like all Automatic features, works only in the U.S. You must be logged into the Automatic app and connected to the Automatic Link. Location services must be enabled, and you must have an adequate data connection at the time of the crash to support location services and transmission of a crash report to Automatic's servers. Depending on your location, first responders or other local authorities may be reached instead of a 911 operator.
When the 'check engine' light comes on, Automatic alerts you right away with a push notification.
It then retrieves the Engine Trouble Codes – which help mechanics diagnose the problem – from your car's onboard computer.
Automatic shows you what those Engine Trouble Codes mean and in many cases offers possible solutions. For simple problems, you can even clear the light yourself, and save a trip to the shop.
For more complicated issues, Automatic shows you well-reviewed mechanics nearby. Call them or get directions with a tap.
Because Automatic connects to your car when you drive, it always knows where you parked.
Drivers of the same car can grant each other access to its parked location for seamless car sharing.
